Did you get a chance to play this yet?  Looking for some thoughts on the game systems.

Not yet! i've read the rules and they are straightforward. the game components are smashing. cant wait to have them painted by my friend Valentin who worked on AT 43.

the stat cards include anti air stats (there are no planes in the box) and at the end of the rules no less than 5 expensions are mentioned.

this game is here to stay i believe. there's a massive buzz around it. Very Happy

we should meet next sunday with my friends to try it out. Last sunday we played AAM, memoir 44 and space hulk the card game.

Played my first game tonight. Very Happy  i used the quickstart rules as there's a lot of info to digest! but once going it's rather simple with lots of decision making.

Awesome looking minis.

@general Hoth

I'm on the fences of getting this.  Originally I wanted too then started weaning after awhile with the price tag.  If you don't mind me asking.  I was wondering after a couple of games under your belt what are some things you like and dislike about it so far.

Thanks

I think dust is a great game. great minis, very fast to play (30 mns), clear rules and 5 new sets announced.

on the downside, once you're fluent with the squads and walkers what really is missing is more units! in all you get 3 squads per side and also 2 walkers each. Unless you join forces with another player and join 2 games together to form a huge map with lots of units, it could get a bit limited.

Also if you are into painting, this game is perfect for you. i believe it has been designed with painters in mind.

The rules seem like they will depend on the gridless play when FFG releases them.

The board is a great way to get new people in. But believe that the off board rules is what will keep the game selling. With a limited map and possibilities think it will get a tad bit redundant moving back, forward shoot, shoot.

3 major complaints I have heard over at BGG

300 bucks for prepainted

Game mechanic are to simple. Kind of hard to pin point this. I like simple though.

Lack of variety kills replay value. Basically from some it sounds like it will depend on expansions for better replay value.

Majority of people seem to like the ease and theme of the game.

Someone brought the game over at Center Field. The minis are great, but do not see how they are better than AT-43. 300 price tag is a joke, but when you produce limited quantities  prices will be higher.
